#IWSG : Are You Like Peppermint Patty?

It's Insecure Writer's Support Group Day! There is a lot to learn from this group and all writers are welcome. If you'd like to join us, click on this LINK. 

Many thanks to our host, Alex Cavanaugh, and this month's co-hosts, Janet Alcorn, SE White, Victoria Marie Lees, and Cathrina Constantine, for making this event happen. 

This month's optional question is: What turns you off when visiting an author's website/blog? Lack of information? A drone of negativity? Little mention of author's books? Constant mention of books?

Droning is a huge turn-off. That's when I skim. Ha! I think I just realized why the teacher on Charlie Brown only says "wah wah wah". 

It looks like Peppermint Patty agrees...





What is your biggest turn-off when you visit websites/blogs?

IWSG: Do You BookBub?


Buh-Bye 2023! *waves vigorously*

Welcome 2024!

First, the Happiest of New Years to you all! 

Welcome Insecure Writer's Support Group members!
It's the first post of the year. If you'd like to join us on the first Wednesday of every month, GO HERE

Thank you to our host, Alex Cavanaugh, and this month's co-hosts: Joylene Nowell Butler, Olga Godim, Diedre Knight, and Natalie Aguirre for making this event happen. 

January 3 optional question: Do you follow back your readers on BookBub or do you only follow back other authors?

I didn't remember signing up at BookBub. Anyway, prompted by this month's question, I went to check it out. As it turns out, I have an account. So I updated my profile and books, etc. 

But really, I'm not familiar with it at all. So I'm extremely interested in what you all do about followers/following, and why.

Are you on BookBub? 

Do you follow back readers, or just authors? Why? 

Are there pros and cons?
